Grosvenor completes new athletic facility at British International School of Washington in the Georgetown area



Washington, DC — Grosvenor announced the completion of a new athletic facility at the British International School of Washington (BISW) in the Georgetown area of Washington DC, located adjacent to the company’s new redevelopment project at 3300 Whitehaven St.

Grosvenor acquired the site in 2020 with two existing buildings in place – a Georgetown University occupied office building at 3300 Whitehaven St. and the BISW building at 2001 Wisconsin Ave.

Since then, Grosvenor has launched a redevelopment plan to replace the former Georgetown University office with a new 280 unit class A rental apartment while preserving and enhancing the school’s existing facilities. As part of the school’s upgrades, Grosvenor began building a brand new athletic facility in a portion of the existing below-grade parking garage, located between the school building and the new planned multifamily property.

Construction on the athletic facility began in September 2022 and is now completed and ready for use. The new state of the art, dual-use facility functions as both a gymnasium and auditorium and will bring athletic functions on site that previously occurred at area rec centers or other schools.

Once the full redevelopment of the site is complete, the school will also receive a new play area in the plaza between the two buildings, and approximately 5,700 s/f of expansion space in the ground floor of the multifamily building.

The proposed multifamily building at 3300 Whitehaven will include approximately 280 units upon completion, approximately 15% of which will be affordable. The use of mass timber, a leading-edge building technology that will offer a substantial reduction in the building’s embodied carbon footprint, is also being considered for the project’s construction.
